The J. Lohr Tower Road Petite Sirah is bright and energetic, with aromas of cranberry and olallieberry and subtle floral accents. Delightful, with tart red and blue fruit on the palate, followed by exquisite length, concentration, and structure. This dense and delicious wine will open up early with a splash-decant, and should develop in the bottle for up to 8 years.

Tower Road Vineyard
In the vineyards surrounding Tower Road, in the Estrella district of Paso Robles, our Petite Sirah thrives on the well-drained yet heavier clay soils of the area. Our ripening program requires that we apply netting to the vines in August to assure that birds don’t overfeed on this especially flavorful grape before harvest. Intense summer sun and very warm daytime temperatures in Paso Robles are balanced by the gentle afternoon breezes that creep in from the Monterey Bay to the north and from the Templeton Gap to the west. These winds cool the area by as much as fifty degrees by early morning, preserving the acidity and bright fruit character of our Petite Sirah.
